Join our Managing in Crisis Facebook group
A safe space for museum leaders and managers to connect and share insights
As the museum sector navigates the Covid-19 crisis, we are launching Managing in Crisis, a Facebook group for museum leaders and managers.
The group is open to both MA members and non members, and aims to give those in positions of leadership, management or supervision a safe, private space to connect, engage and share insights, information and learning during a time of crisis.
We hope Managing in Crisis will help you feel supported ethically, effectively and empathetically, and give you the confidence to lead, manage and supervise your team through the experience of being furloughed, working from home, returning to work and dealing with the issues raised by potential redundancy.
Equally we want the space to support your own health, wellbeing and resilience so you are best placed to be successful.
MA workforce development officer Tamsin Russell said: “In May we launched our support group for furloughed individuals and those who have been unable to freelancer or volunteer as a result of Covid-19.
“The aim of this group was to create a safe and confidential space for group support by sharing things that have been helpful, asking questions, signposting resources or information.
“We had a number of requests from managers who wanted to join to help them understand how best they could support their own staff – this demonstrated for us a gap in provision and support and so we have now launched a group for leaders, managers and supervisors – we hope to be able to support them support their teams.”
MA Managing in Crisis Covid Support Group is designed to be a safe, welcoming and inclusive digital space, so please read our digital Code of Conduct before signing up.
To join, visit MA Managing In Crisis you will be asked to complete a short, confidential questionnaire on why you would like to join.
